Janet Jackson is getting a 2-night documentary event on Lifetime and A&E
January 3rd, 2022 under A&E, Lifetime, The Jacksons. [ Comments: none ]

Janet Jackson is one of the most well-known people in the world, but we don’t know much about the woman that has been in the spotlight since she was a little girl.

That is all going to change on January 28th when Lifetime and A&E air a two-night, four-hour documentary about Janet. As she says, “This is my story told by me. Not through someone else’s eyes.”

We will learn things about her we never knew, and she will clear up the rumors we have all wondered about, like did she have a secret baby and what happened during her infamous Super Bowl performance.

Since the doc is being produced by her and Randy Jackson, you know it is her truth. Because of that, I can’t wait to learn more about the women we know but don’t know.


I Survived a Serial Killer tells the true stories of victims who are lucky to be alive
August 18th, 2021 under A&E. [ Comments: none ]

Most serial killers have at least one victim who survived to tell about their harrowing ordeal. Starting tonight at 9:30p on A&E, we will hear their horrifying stories on I Survived a Serial Killer.

In 1992, Jennifer Asbenson accepted a ride from Andrew Urdiales. Unfortunately, that choice became the biggest mistake of her life. That is because he kidnapped her, tried to rape her, and then kill her. She was the only woman out of eight who literally was in his clutches and made it out alive.

Tonight, she shares what happened on that fateful day, what he did to her, and how she got away. We also hear from the cops who worked the case and how they finally caught him.

There are so many serial killer documentaries that focus on the police and/or the families, but this 12-part series focuses on the only people who can tell what it is like to survive the hands of some of the sickest murderers.

It is something that might have been told in the past, but not like this. If you think about it, these are the voices that we really want to hear from.

In the upcoming episodes, we will hear from the people who lived to tell what it was like to come face to face with Richard Beasley (AKA The Craigslist Killer), Angel Resendiz (AKA The Railway Killer), or David Parker Ray (AKA The Toy Box Killer) and live.

You might want to sleep with the lights on that night because the truth is always scarier than fiction. And their truths are some of the most terrifying.

As someone who is obsessed with series because I lived in the next town from the Son of Sam, this docuseries is my latest addiction. I think that says a lot because this is a topic I have focused on for decades.


Farrah Fawcett Forever is a beautiful biography about the iconic woman
July 9th, 2019 under A&E. [ Comments: none ]

Farrah Fawcett was the type of woman, who women wanted to be and men wanted to be with. The actress lived an extraordinary life, one that was almost as beautiful as she was. Tonight at 9p on A&E, Farrah Fawcett Forever takes a look at her life from when she was a child in Texas up until her death from anal cancer in 2009.

Farrah Fawcett was born in Corpus Christi on Feb 02, 1947. She was a beautiful girl with a happy life. When she went to the University of Texas, she was so popular that everyone knew who she was by the end of her freshman year. In fact, even Hollywood came calling for her. She did not return their calls at first because she was enjoying college so much. Eventually, she does. Once she does, her life changes forever.

She starts out doing commercials and bit roles. While doing so she meets Lee Majors, who was one of the biggest television actors at the time. The two of them fall in love and eventually get married. Her nephew talks about that special day and shares pictures from it.

Talking about pictures, her tennis coach reveals how her infamous red bathing suit poster came about. Believe it or not, that was the last shot of the day. She was an international star just because of that poster, but her most famous role was about to happen.

That role was Charlie’s Angels. After the first season, she quit the show. Only to be forced back because she was under contract. Her husband wanted her to be a stay at home wife. However, her acting career was climbing while he was declining. It would be the beginning of the end of their marriage. Little did he know what would happen when he brought Ryan O’Neal over for dinner one night.

The two of them started a love affair that had plenty of ups and downs, but it gave her greatest joy. Her son Redmond. Everything was going so well for them and her career. She was finally being seen as a serious actress and receiving multiple awards for her work.

Then the Northridge earthquake happened and her perfect life was suddenly not so perfect. Her house was split in two during the quake, she split from O’Neal, her son was doing hard drugs, her mom got sick and died, and then she was diagnosed with cancer.

She decided to let every in on her cancer journey by filming what she was going through. She let strangers into her life as she bravely fought for her life. A battle she would eventually lose on June 25, 2009.

Farrah Fawcett Forever includes never before seen photos, old and new interviews with those closest to her including herself and home videos. We will also learn little tidbits like how she got her infamous hairstyle and so much more. If you ever wanted to know about the gorgeous, intelligent woman behind the image, this is the documentary you must watch. Even if you are not a fan, it is nice to see the story of a strong woman in Hollywood who has beauty and brains.


David Cassidy’s ex-wife says his A&E special is ‘exploitative & sensational’
June 7th, 2018 under A&E, Danny Bonaduce, David Cassidy. [ Comments: none ]
In November, David Cassidy passed away at the age of 67. In the months before he died, he worked on an album with a band, and let a camera crew into his life. This Monday, David Cassidy: The Last Session is going to air and his ex-wife has some things to say about it.

Sue Shifrin, whose divorce to him was finalized 2 years ago, wrote, “I have been inundated with comments re upcoming A&E special about @davidcassidyfan. I rarely comment personally on such matters, however I cannot tell you how sad & disappointed we are that A&E chose to air this special that noone in the Cassidy Family sanctioned or wanted aired. This program is exploitive & sensational. Everyone who participated were interested in only one thing….in their 15 secs of fame. Shame on A&E and all involved.”

Danny Bonaduce, who was his costar on The Partridge Family, responded to her Tweet with, “Dear Sue, Sorry to hear my 15 min are just about up. I kind of knew. There was a Cassidy involved, his name was David. He asked me to participate & I was happy to do it for him. I don’t see any shame in speaking fondly about David. My best to you & Beau.”

Yesterday, I watched the special and I did not find it disrespectful to him as a whole. That clip that they sent out to the press was and it only airs in the final minutes of the show. The biography started filming him in September and he is getting tested to find out if he has Dementia because he says he was having memory problems. They do find there is something going on, but they will need to do more tests.

Then the special talks about his life, or lack thereof one with his father, Jack Cassidy. The album is full of songs that were special to him and his dad. In between recording the tunes, he told stories about his father.

We do not only hear about his dad, they also talk about him becoming an overnight sensation. They also show how his life changed dramatically when he became Keith Partridge. He had to lead a squeaky-clean life and yet he did not have one because he could not go anywhere in public without being attacked by fans. You see the great lengths they went to, to keep his admirers away from him.

Besides showing flashbacks, you see him recording with the band. This is where Shifrin might have a point. It is not easy to watch him because you can tell he is pain and it is hard for him to walk at times. Throughout all of the pain, he kept working because of the work ethic his dad instilled in him. After a few days, the pain is so bad he cannot record anymore. The band tries to get him to go to the hospital and he refuses. When he cannot fly back to Florida because of the pain, that is when he decides to go to the hospital. Shortly after they drop him off, is when they get the phone call that we all heard yesterday.

At no point in the special do you see him drinking. In fact, he even says he is clean when he goes to the doctor. The first time you hear that he was drinking was at the end of the special. I think that it shows what his last few weeks were like and how hard they were on him emotionally and physically. I do not think they exploited him as much as other specials have done to other celebrities or how much the telemovie based on his life did. However, I only saw him in a Broadway play once and spent a few hours interviewing him for a sitcom he was doing with his brothers, Shaun and Patrick, who are not in the special at all. I have a special place in my heart for him, but nowhere near as special as they do. Thus, what they might not want it to air.

When it comes to Bonaduce, he was very respectful of his old friend and he is shown that way. The radio DJ talks about how Cassidy took him out on tour with him in the early ’80s to get Bonaduce off of the dangerous path he was going down. Bonaduce also says that he cannot understand how Dementia can cause your organs to fail. Even he did not know about the drinking. I do not think anyone did until yesterday.

I get why Shifrin and his family do not want it to air. I can also see why the fans of his would want to see it. It is an intimate look at the last few weeks of his life. Personally, I think some of the E! True Hollywood Specials and VH1 Behind the Musics were more exploitative to celebrities than this show is to him. It is up to you whether or not you want to watch.

UPDATE: Sue Shifrin said tweeted that she was not referring to Bonaduce in her tweets.
